driver for voodoo3 2000 pci on redhat 6.0

does anyone know of a driver for a voodoo3 2000 pci 3d accelerator that will work with redhat linux 6.0?  If so, where could I get it and how would I install it without having to have access to the internet through linux but on win98?

Thanks

The files are small enough to fit on a floppy, so just use a floppy to transfer. then READ-THE-DOCS! Both on the site, and included with the drivers.

After I download the drivers onto a floppy, how do I transfer them into to the linux driver files so XF86Setup will recognize them withouth having to use X?

You don't have to use the 3dfx drivers anymore because the newest XFree86 server now has support.  You can go to http://www.3dfx.com/index.html click on the driver section for the Voodoo3, and you can download the newest SVGA server, XFree86-SVGA-3.3.5-0.6.1.i386.rpm. This works much better than the 3dfx drivers, and is much better supported by the Open Source community.  You will also have to set-up XFree86 3.3.5, see filewatcher.org for potential places to get it, or visit  www.xfree86.org.                                                              

You may have to install other packages to get the
new XFree86 to install properly.  Rpm will tell you what other packages you need to install if this is the case.
Here are the directions:
                                                                                 
1.execute the following commands.
2.rpm -Uvh XFree86-SVGA-3.3.5-0.6.1.i386.rpm
3.If you would like to use XF86Setup to assist with setting
up the X server, execute the following command :
   1.rpm -Uvh XFree86-XF86Setup-3.3.5-0.6.1.i386.rpm

You now have a new XF83Setup installed which will help you setup the new SVGA server which will work with your card.

You can access Windows directly from Linux if fat and vfat support is compiled into the kernel for Windows filesystem.
You would just mount windows on a partition using the mount command, and then you can copy or move the files over to Linux.   If you have your boxes networked you could use the smbfs to access your files from Windows.
